I am on H1b, I have a i-140 approved with a pd of Oct 2010 from my ex employer.

The current employer just started the perm and are very slow. Considering  my priority date is current, can i change employers ?

If i change to another company will i get a 3 year h1b extension ?



Based on the rule as it is written, you will only get single time 1yr extension when you change employer, your PD is current and I-485 AOS is not filed. A second extension is not possible unless there are circumstances beyond control(depends on how strict USCIS is) or I-485 is filed.

Many people have got 3yr extensions in this situation as well, but it all depends on the lawyer and mood of USCIS officer. Good luck.
